NeN Energia partners up with NET2GRID to empower Italian consumers through energy insights

  • NeN Energia and NET2GRID have come together to offer Il Robo, an innovative service that measures electricity consumption at home.

  • Il Robo is a small device that allows for energy consumption monitoring on appliance level. NeN Energia customers can see how they spend electricity at home, how to reduce consumption and how to avoid electricity cut-offs.

  • The product was launched on April the 15th in Italy and attracted hundreds of customers on the day of launch only.

Zeist, The Netherlands, 18 June 2021 - NeN Energia, the first Italian EnerTech company and NET2GRID are pleased to announce that they have partnered up to offer the innovative service Il Robo to Italian consumers. Il Robo is a small device that is installed in the fuse box and measures electricity consumption at home. In the NeN mobile application, customers see how much energy they consume per appliance and get personalized energy-saving tips

In an effort to acquire clients and help them reduce their energy footprint and costs, NeN Energia strategically invested in technology and customer experience, providing a truly innovative energy offering and distinguishing itself from the competition. Il Robo helps both NeN to acquire new customers and its customers to reduce their energy footprint and costs. NET2GRID helps businesses remain ahead of the curve by leveraging the power of IT and Artificial Intelligence to offer a highly accurate and data-driven residential insights solution.

As an example of this service, the app alerts customers if their peak consumption is exceeding the limit of the meter thus avoiding a power cut and a tedious trip to the basement to reset the meter.

In addition, insights into the peak power consumption in combination with the appliance disaggregation are also used to advise customers on spreading their consumption or changing their capacity tariff.

''After extensive market research, we decided to partner up with NET2GRID to offer Il Robo to Italian customers. We are confident that NET2GRID's top-notch NILM (Non-Intrusive Load Monitoring) technology will contribute towards Il Robo's success,'' said Camille Vial, Head of Growth at NeN Energia

‘’NeN Energia has been the only Italian energy retailer to fully integrate within their app such an innovative offering with remarkable customer acquisition benefits since the early days of its launch. We are very happy to have been able to support NeN Energia in this journey. ’’ says Bert Lutje Berenbroek, NET2GRID’s CEO.
